Piatti del giorno 71
Fundamentals today, folks.
- A Brief History of Databases - Funny, my SELECT statements still require an icepick (via Alexis Madrigal).
- Monads for functional programming - “It is with regard to modularity that explicit data flow becomes both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, it is the ultimate in modularity. All data in and all data out are rendered manifest and accessible, providing a maximum of flexibility. On the other hand, it is the nadir of modularity. The essence of an algorithm can become buried under the plumbing required to carry data from its point of creation to its point of use” (via John D Cook).
- objc.io: Syncing Data: Oooo. You owe it to yourself to keep up with this magazine. And you owe it to the authors to pay up. Go do both.
